The Year 4 Curriculum



Each half term Year 4 will be focus on a high quality book where they will continue to learn the skills of fluency and comprehension. This is also used as a stimulus to develop pupils writing skills in the different genres.


Accelerated Reading will continue next academic year where children will regularly choose books from our school library where they can read at school and at home. All pupils are given a username and password to answer a quiz on completion of the book to check their understanding.



Children are taught Maths skills on a daily basis, using the White Rose Maths Scheme, which develops their fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills. It is important that they know their times tables. All children have access to Times Tables Rock Stars to help them practice.



Each term or half term children will have the opportunity to learn new knowledge and skills through Humanities & or Science.

We endeavour to support pupils learning by going on school trips. Whether these are local trips, such as visits to Batley Library, or further afield, we will provide information nearer the time. 



Children will participate in PE every week using the hall or outside facilities. Please ensure that children wear the correct clothing of black shorts/ black joggers, black t-shirt, suitable footwear and no jewellery. Children will have opportunities throughout the year to attend sporting competitions including our annual sports day. There is a range of after school clubs that children can also attend throughout the year.


Year 4 Multiplication Test:

The purpose of the Multiplication Test is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will help schools to identify pupils who have not yet mastered their times tables, so that additional support can be provided. The test will be delivered as an online, on-screen digital assessment. Under standard administration, the check will take each pupil less than 5 minutes to complete.


We encourage pupils to use this website to develop rapid recall of multiplication facts:


Children will continue to receive homework every Wednesday which needs completing and handing in the following Monday.



The school communicates in a number of ways to keep parents & guardians up to date. If you do not yet downloaded the school ping app to your smart phone, then please speak to the school office for further information.
